You have stolen my heart. The way you crinkle your little nose and say I don't like that. The way you lavish I Love You's on Mommy. The way you sparkle every day. These moments, these endearing qualities fill me up with love more and more each day. You're a little tornado of love. So sensitive, so sweet. You're forever besotted with yellow and elephants and Einsteins. Just last night you grabbed a microphone and sang the whole theme song. You're very proud. It's just the sweetest thing to see. You've finally started to enjoy tasty treats like cookies and cupcakes, but still won't eat veggies. You had such a blast on our beach vacation and splashed in the waves for hours. This summer you've started talking really well. Full sentences and lots of chatter. You adore your sister and I love how you call her "sister". Here's what else you like ~ animal cards, yellow cars, tossing toys, socks at bedtime, pillow wrestling, sliding, and, of course, milk. You love milk. You always get "great helper" stickers at school and you seem to enjoy your classmates. They all call you Maxi Bear, which is perfectly adorable. Miss Ashley told me last week that you're the only one that listens when you leave the room for walks. Oh what a proud Momma I am. I love you Baby Bear. May the twinkle in your eye always shine.
